First day of slushless streets, so I took my longboard out for a skate today. And so the adventure begins...

Cutting thru a parking lot, a wino man was struggling hard against gravity to peel himself off the pavement. I passed him going uphill to the next street. A few seconds later, somebody's pushing me into the path of an oncoming car; I bounce off it & turn around...& its wino man! (How the hell did he get up so quickly & run uphill?)

He wants some go time w/ me. A crowd of passersby run up & quickly there's a small mob. I tell them to leave him alone, I warn wino man to stay away from me, & I tell the parkiong lot attendant to call the cops.

Wino man fucks off, & is soon mixing it up with rush hour traffic. A bus stops inches short from mowing him over.

Anybody else on the receiving end of random aggression lately?

I had a similar situation with a crazy earlier today.... well, actually two of them.

I got on the Yonge line Northbound from Bloor station going to Finch. I sit down beside one guy and the guy opposite me starts yelling and singing. This guy was from Grenada and singing at the top of his lungs about the beauty of Grenada, racial tolerance ,Toronto, God Save The Queen, O'Canada etc. The guy next to me starts talking about Las Vegas (I was reading an article about high school kids gambling) and then the two crazies start arguing about the Grenadan War ("I was in Grenada when the shit hit the fan"... what movie quote?). This goes on from Summerhill to York Mills. The Grenadan gentleman gets off but the other guy redirects his tirade towards me (and I'm sitting shoulder to shoulder with him). Finally I get off at Finch and say goodbye to crazy number 2. I'd had 3.5 hours of sleep and was not in the mood.

Crazy number 1 was actually a really happy, uplifting fellow it was just pretty early in the morning.

anyway, my life was not in danger so you have me beat depraved.

You know what day-old Swiss Chalet chicken looks like?

One time, walking along Harbord, this homeless dude comes crawling rapidly out of these bushes towards me yelling,"Arghhhj... hhhhhh... shssshshshs... arrhhhgg". His skin was made of day-old Swiss Chalet chicken, and his clothes, well, I think he must have covered himself in paste and jumped into a dumpster for them.

Scared the shit out of me. Only time in my life I've actually yelped. It's like he appeared out of nowhere. The thing that actually scared me was that he looked exactly like an older version of me. I went home and studied hard, and it wasn't too long afterwards that I quite drinking alcomahol and Lysol and eating paste. Still like Swiss Chalet though.

On the crazy random aggression tip, it was '88 and I was a skinny punk rocker coming out of one of the many bootleg teeshirt shops on Yonge St at the time, and a lanky bearded crazy man walks by me muttering. I thought nothing of it, this being Yonge St and all. About 12 seconds later, I'm flying 12 feet forward through the air and skidding my face on the sidewalk. I look back and crazy man shakes his fist and runs the other way. He apparently took a run at me for some reason.

On the gross rummy tip, I was waiting for a friend just inside the Hudson's Bay center at Yonge/Bloor on the steps. This guy comes and sits next to me, and asks me if I want a drink. I think about it, and say no, as it's pretty early. I'm thinking Jack Daniels, and he proceeds to pull out a can of Lysol, spray a whack into the cap and dilute it with Evian, then shoot it back. I swear I almost fucking puked.

BBB.

..AND THEN I ATE THE BOWL!

my dad was driving home from my place last weekend...

he was driving up sherbourne where there is only one lane and a bike lane....
a red sportscar was driving in the bike lane and was really pissed at my dad that he wouldn't let him in.
eventually they stop at a light and the driver gets out, and JUMPS ON THE ROOF OF MY DAD'S CAR and starts jumping up and down, screaming his head off.
wtf??
my dad calls 911 on his cell, stays in the car...eventually the guy gets off, jumps back in his car and does a u-turn and drives away before my dad could get his license plate number.
very bizarre.
the guy did 3000$ in structural damage to my dad's car.

fucking weird.

back to the original topic

Ive had one or two kind of wack experiences where I live... which happens to be one of the nicest cities in Canada. Whenever its warm, its seems that all the crazies come out. Lately, Ive had a couple local speed head homeless dudes come and tell me to stop messing with them or theyll kill me - all while Im waiting at the bus stop with my headphones on... also, since Ive been in BC, Ive been witness to a number or weird street events with the average transient hippies - some of them have serious attitude problems.
